My girlfriend's name is Brae. This is her mouth. Amazing things happen when it gets hold of the English language.

Resembling at various times Reverend Spooner, The Bard and a Japanese novelty t-shirt, she is an endless wellspring of linguistic gems and curiosities.

What follows in an attempt to catalogue Brae's unique, creative and often baffling relationship with the spoken word.

"Your love sucks!"

I am rebuked.

"She's totally trying to fuck him off."

Brae was talking about a girlfriend who is trying to ditch a potential suitor. I think what we've got here is some hodgepodge of "blow him off" and "fuck off." Either that or Brae's girlfriend is going about this totally the wrong way.

The Spectacular Vernacular

Brae is actually my girlfriend's middle name. Her first name is Verna (which should give you a clue as to why she goes by her middle name.)

When Brae blesses the world with one of her semantic novelties we refer to them generally as her Vernacular.

I'll often say to her "your Vernacular is spectacular."

And it is. Yes, it is.

"What? The baby died of zits?"

We were watching an episode of Six Feet Under where a baby died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Video Extra

I clandestinely shot this video while Brae watched her favorite show, Dog the Bounty Hunter.

It has little to do with her creative language arts but I thought it was a nice little glimpse of Brae's personality for people who don't know her.

Like most people, she cringes at the sound of her own voice and hates this video, but I think it's adorable and hilarious.

"I'm feeling droggy."

I don't know, Brae. Maybe you need a peppy.

"I feel disgrunted."

Brae seems to have a tough time with this one.

"I think they were normatic people."

Brae gets all anthropological and stuff.
